He then works through the process of formatting and submitting data and administering MySQL, followed by more advanced work such as dealing with advanced SQL queries, binary data, and structured PHP programming. Appendices include descriptions of MySQL syntax, functions, and data, and PHP functions for working with MySQL. Yank includes many examples of code and screen shots, as well as a nicely comprehensive index. In this third edition, Yank updates information on installation and PHP programming.
